Oppo has announced the launch in Europe of the Reno 6 range, with two new versions with 5G connectivity and new features in the cameras.
We are facing the most desired models of the Chinese manufacturer, which is part of the same BBK group to which OnePlus and Realme belong. In the case of the new Reno6, the priority seems to have been to adapt the models already launched in China, adding 5G and adapting them to the European market.
The new range consists of two devices, the top of the range being the Oppo Reno6 Pro with a starting price of 799 euros . This is the one that uses the most powerful processor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 with 12 GB of RAM, and the one with the best cameras, but otherwise, they are very similar aesthetically and in functionalities.
Oppo’s presentation has focused on cameras, and on the use of Artificial Intelligence to improve our photographs. The Reno6 Pro features a 50 MP main sensor made by Sony, the IMX766, accompanied by a 16 MP wide angle, a 13 MP telephoto lens with 2x magnification and a 2 MP macro lens. The large aperture of the main camera allows you to take high-quality day or night photos, and the included color temperature sensor allows greater precision in the representation of photos. It has Flash Snapshot technology, capable of focusing automatically the moment we open the camera app.
Video recording has also received an important novelty, the bokeh effect portrait video mode , which is capable of automatically blurring the background, an effect that works especially well with backlights. The use of AI algorithms is noticeable in Live HDR mode, which optimizes ambient light automatically when shooting video.
The camera is also capable of automatically focusing on the subject we are recording, even in motion, and the Dual-View mode allows us to capture with the rear and front cameras at the same time, to record our reactions.
Like competing models, the Oppo Reno6 Pro also has 65 W fast charging , to recover 100% of our 4,500 mAh battery in just 31 minutes. Cooling is done by a larger-than-usual vapor chamber that covers 32% of the phone’s surface, achieving a thickness of 7.99 mm and a weight of 188 grams.
Abroad, Oppo has unveiled a new design line called Glow, which it claims is the result of more than 20 patents applied for. It has a transparent matte finish, which shines from all angles; still, Oppo claims that it repels fingerprints. The 6.55-inch AMOLED screen is curved, so it reaches the edges, giving a more luxurious effect.
The second device announced is the basic Oppo Reno6, priced at 499 euros; therefore, we see some changes especially in the processor which is now a Mediatek Dimensity 900 with 8 GB of RAM.

In addition, the screen is a little smaller, 6.43 inches, but maintains the AMOLED technology and the refresh rate of 90 Hz. In addition, it also has a fast charge of 65 W, with a slightly smaller battery, of 4,300 mAh. . It also retains the Oppo Glow effect on the case, and the Bokeh effect portrait video technology on the cameras.
